Philippe Starck (born 1949) is one of the world's most famous and prolific designers. From luxurious hotels and high-profile restaurants to his inspirational reworkings of everyday household items like the juicer, Starck's elegant designs have consistently been guided by principles of functionality; every object is designed to be at the disposal of its users. Before Starck's designs reach these users, however, they begin life as ideas on a page, and it is this side of Starck's work that Philippe Starck: Secret Drawings addresses for the first time. This volume includes thousands of never-before-seen drawings and sketches, published to accompany an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou M laga conceived as an extension of the 2003 Philippe Starck exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This book offers "something intimate and secret," as Starck himself writes--insight into the very core of the designer's creative process.
